Parsec is looking for an experienced Senior QA Engineer to form and lead a best-in-class QA team. This is a great opportunity to come in on the ground level, with a large degree of autonomy and empowerment, defining processes and hiring strategy.

  • Become an expert on Parsec’s products and technologies, proactively identifying risks and problem areas, and providing insightful critical feedback on functionality and user experience
  • Contribute to, and help maintain, automated test suites covering multiple products, and devise a strategy for hardware compatibility testing
  • Hire, manage, and mentor a AAA team of QA testers

What we're looking for

  • A deep technical understanding of Windows, computer hardware, APIs, web technologies, network technologies, and cloud-native applications
  • Prior experience with both manual and automated testing, test plan management, and the software development life cycle
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills and strong cross functional collaboration
  • Strong discipline applied to structured and organized workflows, processes, and individual efforts
  • Experience with scripting or coding in at least one language

You might also have

  • A “get it done” attitude and willingness to roll up your sleeves
  • Experience hiring QA engineers, managing a team, and mentoring junior direct reports
  • A passion for technology, both software and hardware, always excited to learn and play with what’s new
  • Prior IT or helpdesk experience, or other experience with corporate network and device management
  • Remote work experience, understanding how to effectively communicate, organize, and work with distributed teams
